Hello everyone. I have a hypothetical question. I have the chance to buy a Pelikan R200 rollerball in a somewhat rare color scheme. Is it at all possible to have that barrel taken and turned into a proper Pelikan M250 fountain pen? I've seen custom bindes placed on M800's but wasn't sure if the barrel could be cut down and fitted to an M250. I suspect it's not possible or, even if it were, too difficult/expensive to contemplate but thought I'd ask to ease my troubled mind and put the matter to rest. Thanks for indulging my mad scientist moment.
My M150 arrived today, what a beauty! Listed as used but looks absolutely pristine. Not being real familiar with good Pelikans, I was curious: except for the color, this seems identical to my M250 - (post-1997?) single band on cap, band on barrel at piston cap, 'crown' style end cap, exact same size, same nib. Both say "Pelikan Germany" on the cap ring. The only difference I can see is that the print on the rings is ever so slightly smaller on the 150. Is the 150 basically a 250 that was only offered in black to serve as the entry-level pen in the line-up?
I've recently purchased an unspecified pelikan pen, with purple cap and piston knob. judging by the size, it could be a m250 or an m400, since it has a 585 gold nib with Pelikan logo. It has one goldplated ring between the barrel and the piston knob. the gold plated ring on the cap reads "Germany", "Pelikan". the ink window seems to be blueish. I wish I could post a picture, but my phone was stolen and i have no way to take one until i get a new one. do you know how i could determine whether it is a M250 or an M400?
Hi, I currently own a Pelikan Souveran M250 with 14k gold nib manufactured in late 1980s or early 1990s. It's a fine pen and it has been a reliable companion. The other day, I saw the Pelikan Souveran M800 (with 18k gold nib) and I have been going back and forth about buying it. I heard that the 18k gold nib is less durable than 14k and it is prone to wear and tear from daily use. I wonder how much of this is true, and whether I should forget about M800 completely and stick to my trusty M250. Thanks. Henry
